Our hope and prayer is that the witness of the Holy Ghost inside you has calmed fears, eased burdens, driven away doubts, prompted praises, challenged unto commitments, and imparted peace beyond understanding. ‘Preacher, I have no idea what you are talking about. I never get relief inside. Could it be that I am not saved?” Let’s talk about that…
These last few days I have attempted to mine out the abundant treasures of Paul’s writings in Romans. It is always intriguing to me how Paul, through inspiration of the Holy Ghost, justifies faith in Christ as the exclusive avenue into salvation. He explains how it was not Moses’ law, nor Abraham’s works, nor an earthly bloodline that insures a place in God’s heaven, but faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Look at this verse in chapter 4 verse 16. “Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is in the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all;” He went on to say in verse 20 “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.” Then verse 24 says, “But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;”
Have you put your faith in Christ? Let us not assume that people who put Bible verses on their FB page are saved. I cannot truly know the depths of your heart, if you are saved, but you know. Possibly you have a question in your heart that will not go away, “Am I really saved or not?” THE QUESTIONS: Either your communion with the Lord is distant and you need to come to a place of repentance and rededication of your commitment, restoration of communion and communication with the Lord. This happens many times with new Christians who are unfamiliar with the daily conviction of the Holy Ghost for the slightest of sins. If you have ever been saved you cannot get unsaved. You just need to make things right. The only other explanation for the lack of peace, silence of the Savior concerning your problems, and absence of any assurance is that you are lost.
THE POINT: Have you placed your faith on the Lord Jesus Christ? It is possible to be certain (I John 5:13). When I got saved, I remember being under conviction. I was uncomfortable, had unbelievable uncertainty about what would happen if I died. I prayed a prayer that I could not recite to you right now, but I repented of my sins and asked God to save me. I believed He would and He did. If you are not saved, Jesus Christ will do the same for you. Why wait? Pray now. If you have questions you can call me or email me (I will put that info below). I pray that if you are lost, today will be the day you call on His name for salvation. Is he speaking to you? He is the Answer.
This is one post that I would ask that you share because this is The Point of our life, to be saved and tell others how they can be saved.
God Bless You,
